Surrender Form and Agreement
Bichon FurKids Rescue wants to help Bichons and Bichon mixes that can no longer be cared for by their owners. Our primary mission, however, is to rescue those who are in shelters and whose original guardians have abandoned or rejected them, rather than famililes who may have not made provisions for bichons in their care or in the care of other family members. As a result we look very carefully at every surrender application that is submitted and evaluate each on the basis of the application itself.
Our surrender fee is assessed on a case by case basis and ranges depending on the age and health status of the dog. Our fees start at $150. If you are requesting that BFK consider your dog, he or she should be clean, up to date with shots, spayed or neutered, and ready to become a part of a forever family. We will contact you to arrange a time to evaluate your dog – and will advise you of the surrender fee after evaluating your dog. And, unlike some other groups, generally, we do not separate a bonded pair. Additionally, with a bonded pair, there is a surrender fee for each dog.
Before completing this form, please review our surrender process. Then complete the form below and one of our representatives will contact you to see how we can help.
We’ll need some pictures too of the bichon you want to surrender. Ideally, pictures should be taken in natural lighting, like in a well lit room or outdoors. Try to get some pictures while he/she is active (such as romping in the yard, riding in the car or playing with a toy.) A snugly shot or two would also be good to include. Try to avoid taking pictures looking down at him/her. (It’s best to keep your camera at eye level with your dog.) Please send pictures in their original, un-cropped resolution via email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We’ll also need a bit more detail from you once we determine we can accept your dog. A short biography form will help us find the best foster and forever home for him or her.
Please complete this form.
